A Purpose Distracted
Distracted Haunted House was created to provide scary fun entertainment during the Halloween season.Throughout our debut season in 2016 we worked with an addiction and recovery charity group (Team Recovery) and quickly discovered that Distracted could provide so much more than just scares.
We found that in addition to distracting patrons we also provided a valuable distraction for recovering addicts as volunteers in the haunted house. Volunteering helped relieve stress of everyday life during recovery and created unique shared experiences and opportunities for team support. It also productively occupied idol time over weekends that otherwise could contribute to or trigger relapse.
Although our attraction received many 5 star reviews for its' scare factor it was the human impact that was most astonishing and meaningful to the co-founders. A significant monetary donation was made to Team Recovery as well as bringing awareness of the heroin epidemic in Northwest Ohio. TV news features and live spots were covered with local personalities and volunteers at Distracted.
We look forward to making a bigger impact in season 2 as well as offering monthly group opportunities (aka distractions) for recovering addicts and volunteers to work on new projects inside the haunted house and stay connected throughout the year.
Last Halloween we only set out to create scary fun entertainment but found a need for so much more. We are grateful for the individual volunteers and organizations that made our experience so special and we welcome others to come join us and make a difference in 2017.
